Why stay here ...

Set in a quiet, simple and spacious location, Stover Club Site lies next to a beautiful country park on the edge of Dartmoor. If you crave a tranquil break and a wealth of lovely scenic walks, this is the ideal caravan site for your holiday. The Stover Park itself offers a variety of walks - you can choose secure expeditions guided by the Park staff or if you fancy something more challenging the wilder terrains of Dartmoor nearby are waiting to be discovered.

Visitors to Stover Club Site can enjoy the other aspects of Dartmoor by following the nature trail through a lovely valley to see Becky Falls. You can also opt for a leisurely drive to Canonteign for another country park well worth visiting as well as a host of delightful waterfalls. There is also a memorable Heritage Trail near the caravan park called the Templer Way; it runs from Haytor right through to the sea at Shaldon.

Less than a mile away is Trago Mills Family shopping and Leisure Park which includes super karts, trawler boats, steam and model railways plus an interactive animal enclosure so there is something for everyone nearby.

Digital TV signal booster in operation (no lead required).

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Walking notes:

Dartmoor National Park is the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England, with over 368 square miles of moorland, forest and woodland. Stover Country Park is adjacent to the site, via a public footpath to the rear of the site and along a disused railway track. The park has a lake, walking routes, nature centre, aerial walkway and is great for dogs.

Check out our ViewRanger walk.

Supermarket notes:

The nearest supermarket is the Co-Op next to Trago Mills, 2.3 miles away and with motorhome access. Tesco is just outside Newton Abbot – proceed towards the town and then follow the signs for Newton Abbot Racecourse. Sainsbury's is just off the Penn Inn Roundabout on the A380.

Recent stay

Stover Caravan Club Site
We stayed on the site in early July 2021. Lovely site very clean and tidy with well kept grass areas and flowers. Site is situated just of the main A38 with is idea . Situated next to Stover Country Park which is good for dog walking. The only down side/issue is the lack of security barriers ( exit/entry). When we stayed there was only a gate which was closed at approx 8pm. This is where the issue starts, due to the lack of security barriers this allowed 2 families of Travellers to access the site. The mayhem then begun, there children and dogs where allowed to roam freely around the site, with no care for Club members. The pitchers which were taken over quickly became covered in there rubbish. Other club members who where staying on site where approached regards selling there motor homes to the travellers. Load music and anti-social behaviour became the norm. We where lucky enough to be transferred to Exeter Club Site. In short a lovely site but our experience of this has put us off staying here again. There are no Facilities on site but site is kept clean Please Please erect proper security barriers.

lovely site with great wardens (now managers)

Stover Caravan Club Site
Stayed on this site numerous times over the years Always enjoyed the site and the wardens ( who I now think are called managers) are among the best and friendliest we have come across. They seem to be continually around the site tidying, bin emptying, general maintenance. I believe. that the site will shortly have entry and exit barriers which will give added security for all although i believe the club should have done this long ago. i also believe wifi is in the process of being upgraded. Once again thanks to the wardens ( sorry managerss) for making our stay so pleasant. Hope the club let them stay a long time Will we stay here again. Of course we will

Lacking in Information

Stover Caravan Club Site
Site very peaceful. Rather disappointing that no information leaflet handed out on arrival. Would have been helpful to have rather than relying on Internet. Our next site Malvern Hills provided a very helpful leaflet and the Wardens were more welcoming.

Not for wheelchair users

Stover Caravan Club Site
Fantastic wardens, very welcoming and friendly, lovely site, very well maintained... So why only 2 stars? Not suitable for wheelchair users, pitches are almost impossible to move on as the gravel is so deep and coarse (pitch 20 and 22 were the only ones available on arrival) , there are 3 non awning pitches, which are tarmac, and more suit to wheelchair needs, but I have a drive away awning, so couldn't use them. Toilet emptying stations are inaccessible to wheelchairs, very narrow path and tight turns make it impossible to use. If you are able bodied, it is a fantastic site, as a wheelchair user, unfortunately, I won't be back. The caravan Club obviously don't consult wheelchair users, this is not the first site I have criticised, and I am sure it won't be the last. The camping and caravan Club sites are streets ahead in terms of accessibility in general
